We’re very excited to announce that we’ve been accepted onto Tech City UK’s Future Fifty program for the UK’s fastest growing, late stage tech companies. Thank you Tech City!!
Tech City UK has announced 26 new companies that are joining its Future Fifty program, which showcases and supports 50 of the country’s leading growth stage companies.
Future Fifty gives companies immediate access to a valuable peer network; expert-led classes and workshops designed to take their businesses to the next level; and a higher profile amongst the wider tech ecosystem. Future Fifty companies represent some of the country’s most exciting growth stage tech businesses, while changing the sectors that they operate in fundamentally.
“Being recognised by the Future Fifty program as one of the UK’s leading tech companies is a wonderful acknowledgment of the teamwork that goes into making Blis a successful, high growth, international business,” said Blis founder and CEO, Greg Isbister.
“The endorsement adds value to our profile and market positioning and will help us to solidify our business in key markets. It should also help us attract and provide employment opportunities for talented individuals,” he added.
All 26 companies have been identified by a highly experienced and respected judging panel made up of some of the most successful entrepreneurs and investors in UK tech. They believe these companies have the potential to scale rapidly and build significant businesses. The full list of Future Fifty companies is available here.
Greg Clark, Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, said: “The UK has a world-renowned tech and digital sector and the value of the Future Fifty programme has been to support the fastest-growing, most pioneering companies in their final push to build mainstream businesses. The fact that so many Future Fifty companies are now household names is testimony that it works.”
“The innovation that we are seeing in all of these young firms is key to the Government’s Modern Industrial Strategy. We recognise that through tech and the digitisation of many aspects of UK business, we can create new opportunities across the city to expand our economy and make it more productive. The companies that join Future Fifty today will be the established businesses and employers of tomorrow.”
